COVID-19 Vaccination Opportunities

Vaccination

  • Students are strongly encouraged to be fully vaccinated before returning to the university, keeping in mind it takes at least two weeks after the second dose in a two-dose vaccine and two weeks after a single-dose vaccine for the vaccine to be effective.

  • Vaccine is available for students at the University Health Center and may be obtained through local health agencies.

  • Students who wish to establish a COVID-19 immunization record can do so by taking the following steps:

      • Go to ucmo.medicatconnect.com

      • Log in using your MyCentral username and password. 

      • Click the "Immunization" tab.

      • Click on “COVID Vaccine.”

      • Enter the date(s) you received the vaccine.

      • Click “Submit.”

      • Click on the "Upload" tab at the top right side of the screen.

      • Follow the instructions to upload a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.

Vaccinations at UHC

The University Health Center (UHC) offers vaccinations, at no charge and with no need for insurance, for students who have not yet been vaccinated or need to get a second dose. Appointments can be made at the UHC for either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines by calling 660-543-4770. Students who show documentation that they have received the first dose can schedule an appointment to get the second injection. 

 

Testing

Rapid COVID Testing is free for students at the UHC. Because COVID can present like a mild cold or allergies, everybody is encouraged to get tested if they have any mild respiratory symptoms.  

COVID rapid testing is available for students who are not having symptoms or who have not been exposed to a positive COVID case. Please call UHC at 660-543-4770 to schedule an appointment. 

Students who have symptoms are asked to stay home and fill out the COVID Communication Form.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of these opportunities, whether it’s getting vaccinated or tested to determine if you may have the virus. We believe that by working together, we can all make a difference in helping to prevent the spread of the pandemic. 

Multiple agencies and businesses are offering vaccination opportunities. The following sites may help you locate a vaccination opportunity that meets your needs.
